On the meaning of mixing efficiency for buoyancy driven mixing in stratified turbulent flows
(Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2015-09-17)
The concept of a mixing efficiency is widely used to relate the amount of irreversible diabatic mixing in a stratified flow to the amount of energy available to support mixing. This common measure of mixing in a flow is ...
Efficient mixing in stratified flows: experimental study of a Rayleigh-Taylor unstable interface within an otherwise stable stratification
(Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2014-09-09)
Boussinesq salt-water laboratory experiments of Rayleigh–Taylor instability (RTI) can achieve mixing efficiencies greater than 0.75 when the unstable interface is confined between two stable stratifications. This is much ...
